It's Alright to Take a Detour in Life: Nishihara Kinzo, Patissier *RERUN
We follow Nishihara Kinzo (68), a legendary patissier who dazzled the VIPs of the world with his creative and profound sweets as the right-hand man to master French chef Alain Chapel. After working at numerous famous restaurants, he opened his own shop in Kyoto Prefecture, which became so popular it drew customers from across the country and had a constant line out the door. However, at the peak of its popularity, Nishihara closed his shop. Three years later, he now makes Japanese sugar confections sitting in a pool of sunlight. At the little sweets shop he runs with his wife, we explored the profound story that came after the days of glory.
